Newcastle United: Magpies start Callum Hudson-Odoi talks

Newcastle United: Magpies start Callum Hudson-Odoi talks -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United have reportedly now ‘started talks’ over the potential signing of Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The Lowdown: Chelsea raid?

It was reported by The Daily Mirror on Saturday night that the St James’ Park club have entered advanced talks over signing Timo Werner on loan, with an obligation to buy at the end of the season.

If that deal materialises along with Hudson-Odoi, then it could be a double raid of Thomas Tuchel’s Blues.

The Latest: Hudson-Odoi ‘talks’

Taking to Twitter, journalist Rob Pratley – who has featured on the BBC and is the author of The Chelsea Social – has revealed that Newcastle have now ‘started talks’ over potentially signing Hudson-Odoi, but it would take a ‘significant’ transfer fee to sign the 21-year-old.

Pratley tweeted: “Newcastle have formally started talks with Chelsea over a potential signing of Callum Hudson-Odoi. The fee would be significant, and Chelsea are pondering over trying to include a buyback clause.”

Newcastle fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Risky

Signing Hudson-Odoi, especially for a big fee, would be very risky for the Tynesiders.

The Englishman has a bad injury record and earns a whopping £120,000 per week at Stamford Bridge.

Should Newcastle sign Hudson-Odoi?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Furthermore, his goal contribution record is not great for a winger, with just 16 goals and 22 assists in 126 games for the Blues over five seasons (Transfermarkt).

They should be looking to move on to other targets, with the likes Jack Harrison and Maxwel Cornet also being linked with moves to St James’ Park.

Werner has at least shown that he can score goals regularly from his time at RB Leipzig, so he could be a better option than Hudson-Odoi, especially if he would only be signed on loan.
